One of the reasons why I love Pottery Barn (besides their classic approach to home decorating) is the design services they offer. Every month or so you can attend a class at your local Pottery Barn to learn more about decorating. And most classes are after hours so you have some time to shop before the store opens. Each class is different based on the time of the year (i.e. holidays, autumn decoration). They also offer classes based on decorating each different room (dining room, family room, etc).
